The colours of our leather

We currently have two main colours in our range: Classic - A rich brown tan. Smoke - A warm grey. We do our best to display the colours of our goods as accurately as possible on the website. The actual colours you see will depend on your screen so we can't guarantee that your screen will accurately reflect the colour of the product on delivery.

Our über premium 100% vegetable tanned Italian leather is the best of the best. Hand selected. Dyed in age old wooden drums and hand Finished. Leather is a natural material and the colours, shade and depth can vary. The colour of the leather will also appear differently depending on which light you look at the leather under. The beautiful quality is the depth of colour, it's by no means flat. The leather will develop a rich patina over time and the more you use it and expose it to sunlight, the richer and darker it will become.

We design and manufacture our goods with great attention to quality using the best natural materials and carefully assemble them in our Italian workshop. In the unlikely case that a product breaks due to a manufacturing defect please contact us within the periods stated below.

Bags & Shoes:
The warranty for bags and shoes is 6 months from date of purchase.

Small goods:
The warranty for phone cases, laptop sleeves, wallets etc. is 3 months from date of purchase.
Manufacturing defects are very rare for hard graft but if you find a problem with your product please email us with your order number and date of order (obligatory). If you do not have your order number, we will be unable to deal with your request.

If you discover a problem caused by wear and tear we recommend taking your goods to a leather repair shop or tailor. Our Italian workshop is small and extremely busy so unfortunately we are unable to undertake repairs in-house.
Please note: If you buy a hard graft product we recommend to treasure it and treat it with the utmost care. You can get good use out of our goods but they are not indestructible. A phone case for instance which goes in and out of your trouser pocket multiple times a day may get a lot of abrasion and therefore can wear down quicker than a leather bag.

What is the return policy?

We can only accept your return if the goods are absolutely unused and in the original condition. In turn we would never send out used goods to you. When you purchase from hard graft we guarantee that you'll get a brand new product. You will be the first owner of a brand new case, bag or pair of shoes. You get to wear it in and make it yours. 

We are sure you understand that if we receive a used case from you (even if it is used for only one day) it will show and due to our strict guidelines we won't be able to accept the return. So in the unlikely event that you decide that the product is not for you after using and testing it, we recommend to pass it on to a friend or try and sell it privately (hard graft goods tend to have a very good resale value).

We are also not able to directly exchange goods so if you decide you would like a different product you will need to return or cancel your order and place a new one. In the unlikely event that you are not happy with your goods, please email us immediately as we will need to authorise the return. Your return must be dispatched within seven working days from receiving the delivery. Return requests will not be accepted outside of this period or without the supplied return address label. Once the goods are returned to us in the original and unused condition we will process a refund for the goods. If the return is despatched after seven working days we will issue a store credit only at our discretion. If you send back used goods they will be sent back to you at your expense. Shipping costs and import fees are not refundable. Please note that returns from outside the EU that are shipped duty unpaid will be refused until any associated fees are paid by the sender.
